  • We were expecting lots of snow going up into the mountains but guess it’s been a dry year ! Mountains are beautiful - most national venues were closed this time of the year but still beautiful !  more »
  • Hike to Forest Falls was absolutely amazing. There is plenty of parking but always come early to get a good spot. Restrooms are available in the picnic area. Creek crossing and rock hopping and scramb...  more »
  • The crazy winding road was fun to drive with great views. It's a short distance from town with a few small towns along the way. The lakes are pretty and hiking opportunities abound  more »

  • Wendy's cabin was awesome! Beautiful master with fireplace. I didn't give 5 stars only because the backyard was not really ideal for our dogs. Otherwise the neighborhood is quiet and the peekaboo views of the Lake are gorgeous. We love Big Bear and this was close enough and far enough from town. Loved our trip! Thank you Wendy!
  • I've lived in lonely cities I've crossed deserts on camel back And I've filled the halls of folklore with things I'd rather we forget I could sweep you off the street so saying this is goddamn tough But this town might be big enough... See, I reckon what you're saying But this dog's run every course I've roam without my boots on I've raced without my horse And then I ate my horse's meat straight from my horse's bones 'Cause this dog Must roam alone You could shoot me in the mountains In the cold fat rain We could do it in the countryside As we walk the plain It wouldn't give us any closure All cowboys need to trust That this town might be big enough For both of us
  • This used to be my backyard, and boy do I miss it! Hiking here is so close, yet so far away. A personal favorite is the Santa Ana River Trail for both mountain biking and Hiking. Meandering trails over and around the Santa Ana River. Or if you want to change of elevation, hike the San Bernardino Peak Trail or San Gorgonio. Remember to snag a Forest Adventure Pass at the Mill Creek ranger station on the way up Highway 38.
  • Great place to hike and relax. Take in the view and be with nature. Great places to backpack or just take in day hike. They have trails for suit all sorts of levels from easy to very difficult. And if you are into winter hikes wait for it to snow. Amazing views in winter with snow everywhere.
  • It was such a beautiful and easy hike to make. There's free parking so you don't have to pay but if you go on a day that parking is full it only costs $5 for parking and you can get the pass from the general store. Unlike other reviewers I didn't notice any trash along the hike. It was really worth the trip!!!
